It may be that it was before my time. Just looked it up, and can’t say I’ve ever heard it before.
Anyway, it seems I suck at this game. Both luther and evelyn had a stream of hits.
Black is black, Los Bravos
Get on your knees, Los Canarios
This has grown on me
No 8 UK, no 1 Germany
Visage, Fade to Grey
One I've been playing this summer is Blue Pearl, Naked In The Rain...number 1 for more than one week iirc... There's a good mix of that, Paradise Mix is the one for me
Not sure how we're defining 'one-hit wonders' here. But this was Ann Peebles' only chart entry in the UK.
Although Paul Caplin had other hits with haysi fantayzee
Noel Harrison - in his post one hit wonder years - toured america doing a one man show about the life and music of Jacques Brel (who wrote Le Moribund, the original french version of Seasons in the Sun)
One hit wonder, but highly influential...
Sugarhill Gang: Rappers delight.
Visage sure feel like a one hit wonder, but followed up Fade to Grey with 3 more top 20 hits that hardly anyone remembers. I saw one of the follow ups on an old TOTP recently. Obviously it wasn't nearly as good as Fade to Grey.
David Morales Red Zone Dub for me
I was going to say Cornershop's Brimful of Asha, but that was down to the Fat Boy Slim remix really
Their best tune is the b side from their first single:
...and Strawberry Switchblade were managed by the KLF's Bill Drummond it seems.
If I can't have Freiheit can I have this?
What was itmek going on about?
According to spanglechick 's definition of a hit in the OP:
you can have Freiheit (highest chart position #14 in December '88) but not Army of Lovers (highest chart position #31 in February '92). Obviously, Crucified is the better song - I used to have that on 12"
a one hit wonder and one town wonder I shouldn't Wonder. One of the few groups to come out of Maidstone
The Beat goes on was Sonny & Cher.
(Sorry meant to quote your post #92)
Written by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte
As were their other two hit singles
Not often regarded as a one hit wonder, but by many, regarded as One of the greatest ever records
Ooh a couple more.
Rene and Renata - Save your love
Joe Dolce - Shaddupa you face
I think if Eric Clapton's most famous song can count as a one hit wonder, pretty much anything can.
It was under the name of Derek and the dominoes, One album, One single and technically not classed as one of his solo efforts.
Julie London - Cry Me A River
This was her only UK hit, and none of her other records in the US entered the top 100. I was a bit surprised when I learned this - I'd always thought she had a much bigger singing career.
we must have a bit of leeway people. Surely this thread is for entertainment and reminiscing as opposed to total correctness?
What would Goodfellas be without Layla?
Check this guy, Todd in the Shadows out, just found his stuff last week, been bingeing on it for the last few days, his Eight Said Fred vid had me crying with laughter, really does his research, is sarcastic but perfectly pitched well for me at any rate, cant reommend too highly etc.... Night, night
Todd in the Shadows
